Chris Jordan has pulled off one the most outrageous pieces of fielding in recent memory in the fifth T20 between India and England.

Virat Kohli led from the front as India prevailed in the high-scoring series-decider, beating England by 36 runs to complete a 3-2 series victory.

But despite Kohli's heroics and India's victory, Jordan stole the show by sparking the dismissal of Suryakumar Yadav.

Fielding on the long-on boundary, Jordan sprinted to his right and took an incredible one-handed catch before calmly flipping it to teammate Jason Roy before stepping over the rope.

Roy looked on disbelief as the ball came towards him, breaking out a huge smile and looking towards the heavens after completing the dismissal.

Cricket fans and commentators couldn't believe what they'd witnessed.

"Oh my God, oh my word," one TV commentator said.

Virat Kohli inspires India to series victory

Rohit Sharma smashed 64 and Kohli remained not out on 80 to power India to 2-224 - their highest total against England - after being put into bat on Saturday.

Kohli passed a fitness test before the game and promoted himself to open the innings with deputy Rohit.

One of the game's cleanest strikers of the ball, Rohit looked in sublime form, smashing five sixes in his 34-ball blitz.

Ben Stokes ended the 94-run stand with a leg-cutter which Rohit chopped onto his stumps while attempting a pull.

Kohli, who had been watching the batting carnage from the other end, accelerated in company of Hardik Pandya, who made a quick-fire 39.

Roy fell for a duck when England began their chase but Dawid Malan (68) and Jos Buttler (52) launched a spectacular assault to shrug off the setback.

Malan, the top-ranked batsmen in this format, roared back into form, forging a 130-run partnership with Buttler.

Kumar returned to send back Buttler, and Shardul Thakur dismissed Jonny Bairstow and Malan in the same over to turn the match on its head.

T Natarajan dismissed Stokes for 14 in the penultimate over to effectively seal the match in India's favour and England finished on 8-188.

The teams now move to Pune where they will play a three-match one-day series from Tuesday.
